HTTP request to change channel?

I want to use Google Home (with IFTTT) to control some of the functions on my Fox T2. One of the most useful things would be changing channels. Does anyone know if channel changing can be done using a web request, and if so what the format of the request would need to be?

You can use the IR package and the remote control page of the webif to simulate remote control button pushes including changing channels.

For example to change to channel 15 you would need to generate the call
I don't use google home so wouldn't know how best to integrate them

That's absolutely perfect - many thanks
If you do achieve voice control of the Humax let us know - I am sure other users would be interested.

Note whilst simple remote control sequences are reasonably straightforward its unlikely that you will be able to achieve more complex commands such as 'Play the latest Corrie' since the sequence is complex, variable and unpredictable.
I only wanted to set up voice control for changing channels, and I have that working fine. I'm sending Google Home commands to IFTTT (e.g. "Hey Google, Humax BBC1", which is then sending web requests to the Humax as per your advice above.
